Dr Smith went above and beyond to be sure I received the appropriate treatment and day of surgery made sure I was comfortable. His staff was phenomenal with follow up. I can walk again and my recovery has gone way better than expected.

He gave me my life back. I had very nice experience after Lumbar fusion and Laminectomy surgery. I am able to walk today because of his successful surgery. He also helped me get surgery on time when the hospital kept postponing it. He is very patient oriented and explained what he was going to do. I am very grateful to him. I would strongly recommend him to everyone. Thank you Dr. Smith

Dr. Smith took one look at an incision from a surgery done by another doctor and did emergency surgery to remove a spinal cord stimulator. It was loaded iwith infection. thank you to him for acting so quickly.
